has anyone encountered any problems with thier bassies eyes. mines seems to have trouble opening them and isnt moving anywhere or eating as a result i’ve recently done some modifications to my viv and wonder if i’ve put it in to quickly. although i cleaned it perhaps all the sawdust hasnt settled and has caused this. or is there any diseases it may have caught?
.please respond.

I have heard from multiple peeps on the CWD forum, that the coiled UVB bulbs may be responsible for swollen eyes. Do you have those in your terrarium?

I am having the exact same problem with mine. I posted my problem a minuted ago and then read down and it was weird to see you are having the same problem. I don’t have the coiled lights in my tank so that isn’t my problem. My guy has one eye that is fine and the other one is completely closed and puffed right out. Hmmmmmmm........maybe they just have some dirt in them ? Maybe it is a fungal thing???
